A paper prepared for the Global Fund Board meeting on 14-15 November in Geneva outlines options regarding a future process to select the Board chair and vice-chair. The current Board leadership was selected in May 2017. Because the terms of the chair and vice-chair are for two years, the next Board leadership renewal is scheduled to happen in May 2019.
At its 37th meeting on 3-4 May in Kigali, Rwanda, the Global Fund Board appointed Aida Kurtović as Chair of the Board and Ambassador John Simon as Vice-Chair of the Board, each to serve a two-year term. Their terms started when the 37th meeting adjourned.
On 1 March 2017, the Global Fund Board formally launched the process for selecting its next chair and vice-chair. The new board leadership is expected to be named at the next Board meeting on 3-4 May 2017, when the terms of current Chair, Norbert Hauser, and the current Vice-Chair, Aida Kurtovic, expire.
